Coronavirus Caps Iran’s Catastrophic Start to the Year

Everything that could go wrong is going wrong for the Iranian regime.


JERUSALEM – Iran has eclipsed South Korea to record the highest tally of deaths, outside of China, from the rapidly spreading coronavirus. Three more people died in Iran on Tuesday, bringing the number to 15 deaths, with another 95 people infected.

But that is just the official tally. The real figure of those infected is likely far higher.

One Iranian lawmaker from the city of Qom, the epicenter for the Iranian outbreak, said on Monday that already 50 people had been killed from the infection in that city alone, although state-run media has since worked to silence the claim.

Nevertheless, Iran’s neighbors are not taking any risks. Turkey announced over the weekend that it suspected Iran had at least 750 cases of the coronavirus as of Friday. Indeed, if the ratio of infections to deaths is similar to other locations, Turkey’s figure might actually be on the low end of what’s taking place in Iran.
